Spirited Conversations: Behind the Scores with guest Jamie Barton
Join Atlanta Master Chorale on January 25 at 12 pm EST for our first LIVE broadcast of Spirited Conversations: Behind the Scores. Eavesdrop on our Artistic Director Eric Nelson and world-renowned mezzo-soprano, Jamie Barton as they provide a behind-the-scenes look at Jamie’s path to the world stage as a fabulous soloist and her participation in the choral world during her music studies.
Those of us who are local Georgians are especially proud to call Jamie our own. Born in Rome, Georgia, she attended Armuchee High School and obtained a bachelor's degree from Shorter University and pursued a master's degree from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, both degrees in voice performance
American opera singer, Jamie Barton, also known as “Opera’s Nose Studded Rock Star,” is not only a critically acclaimed mezzo-soprano by virtually every major outlet covering classical music, but also a force for good, sharing her love and care for the community and serving as a voice for many marginalized groups and individuals.
In recognition of her iconic performance at the Last Night of the Proms, Jamie was named 2020 Personality of the Year at the BBC Music Magazine Awards. Also the winner of the Beverly Sills Artist Award and Richard Tucker Award, both Main and Song Prizes at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and a Grammy nominee, Jamie has been described by The Guardian as “a great artist, no question, with an imperturbable steadiness of tone, and a nobility of utterance that invites comparison not so much with her contemporaries as with mid-20th century greats such as Kirsten Flagstad.”
